Description

In the Garden: Essays on Nature and Growing is a collection in which fourteen writers go beyond simply considering a plot of soil to explore how gardening is a shared language, an opportunity for connection, something that is always evolving.

Penelope Lively trains her gardening eye on her gardens past and present; Paul Mendez reflects on the image of the paradisal garden; Jon Day asks whether an urban community garden can be a radical place; and Victoria Adukwei Bulley considers the power of herbs and why there is no such thing as a weed.

‘An unpretentious and intelligent collection of ponderings . . . fresh, invigorating and thoroughly enjoyable.’ Gardens Illustrated

‘The wish to create beauty where previously there was ugliness informs many of the essays in the collection . . . strikingly wide-ranging.’ Alex Preston, Spectator
